NOSE

Mahogany colour. Big, deep, sweet and mature (this is 12 years old?) with resinous notes and a balanced almond element that adds in light gingerbread, malt loaf, date loaf and fig rolls. Deep and while sweet, clearly has structure.

PALATE

An intriguing, perfumed, parma violet start. Calmer than the nose suggests, even with the prickle of peppercorns before walnut develops. Balanced and rich. Water helps to cohere things. Feisty but layered.

FINISH

Long, with rich, dark fruits.

CONCLUSION

A late afternoon dram after a hellish day. Actually, I’d have it any day. A new house dram for me. Highly recommended.

RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME

Walking down the cake aisle in an old-fashioned grocer.
